2014 Quinta do Vale Dona Maria

Post by AHB » 21:55 Sun 29 May 2016

Approved by the IVDP in March 2016. A youthful magenta in colour with a wonderful floral nose. Fragrant entry, with beautifully ripe fresh fruit - tasting of the colour purple. The tannins are ripe slightly green and very grippy and support a wonderfully perfumed mid-palate. The aftertaste is generous and lingers gently. Pleasing port. 87-89/100. 22-Apr-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
